How to file an injury case against the city of Chicago

When it comes to injuries suffered on its property, the city of Chicago is subject to the Immunity Act, a law that specifies that neither the government itself nor any one of its employees can be sued while carrying out everyday tasks related to their jobs. At the same time, government entities are responsible for ensuring that their actions are not seen as being either unreasonable or negligent as well.

While the average settlement between 1992 and 1996 was shown to be $287,000, in the period between 2009 and 2014, that same rate reached as high as $353,000.
